About the book
The efficacy and safety of drugs are always points of discussion in the scientific fraternity. The physicochemical properties of drugs limit their delivery in terms of absorption, circulation /residence time, etc. impacting highly on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, toxicity, immunogenicity, and efficacy of drugs. Various advanced drug delivery methods can overcome such issues and improve therapeutic efficacy. In the pharmaceutical field, such methods orient the drug delivery to a specific targeted site like Nasal, Pulmonary, Brain, Buccal, Ocular, Transdermal, Transmucosal, Vaginal/Anal, etc. via novel formulations. The recent development in novel drug delivery systems led this to a new horizon to provide the safest, most effective, and most stable dosage forms. This book will aim to cover advanced methods for drug delivery and novel formulations like Polymeric Nanoparticles, Solid Lipid Nanoparticles, Liquid Nanocrystals, Liposomes, Noisome, Dendrimers, Nanoemulsion, Microemulsion, Transdermal Patch, Nanosuspension, Metal Nanoparticles, Nano-Vaccines, etc. for site-specific and targeted drug delivery. It will also intend to focus on delivery methods of unstable biologicals derived drugs, enzymes, hormones, etc.
